A chilly, damp Sunday morning in Hood River, Oregon was transformed into a warm inviting nook of comfortable kitchiness as we entered Bette's Corner of a cute indoor mall of local small businesses aimed to attract the pedestrian visitors.

We were immediately greeted and seated at what could have been my mother's own kitchen table where an impressive breakfast menu awaited. I chose the Chicken fried steak and eggs with a side of 2 freshly baked biscuits and sausage gravy. All of the wait staff were very busy as we arrived just shy of the standing room only phase of the morning in this obviously popular place. The food was well prepared (hash browns crispy, eggs perfectly over-medium), generous portions plated and served quickly and with a sincere smile and plenty of great coffee.

Bette's is not a huge venue, but customers feel comfortable and welcomed with great service, tasty food and a "down home" feel.

We happened upon this restaurant while exploring downtown Hood River, and found the best homemade giant cinnamon rolls ever! On our way to a cousin reunion, we ordered 2 of their Razzleberry pies to go...and nearly had to get a U-Haul they were so big. Delicious doesn't begin to say how they tasted. The cooks/bakers in this place know how to satisfy!! Once you go, you'll be a lifelong fan. We can't wait to go back!

Bette's Restaurant in downtown Hood River is a "must stop" for lunch or breakfast. On this trip, we have eaten two breakfasts there and they were outstanding!! Be careful of the portions (they can be easily shared) or plan to have a second great meal with the "go box". They have daily specials that are very appealing and make it difficult to make a choice. They make their own yummy marionberry and strawberry rhubarb pies, as well as several others. Enjoy!

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel as a great place for breakfast, so we tried it. The server was polite, but not overly friendly. The four of us had different breakfasts and we all agreed that the food was excellent. Nicely prepared and hot. The French toast gets an A+ . The maple syrup was served warm; a nice touch. They have a nice variety of items on the breakfast menu. We will definitely visit here again when we are in the area.

I have eaten at Bette's many times over the years and am NEVER disappointed. The biscuits and light and fluffy, the cinnamon rolls incredible and the egg dishes done just as you like them. The wait staff is friendly and never seem harried, even though the Sunday morning crowds can keep the joint hopping. My advice is to come earlier rather than later on a weekend morning--midweek you will find many of the local folk there enjoying a terrific breakfast as well. Four star service and old school breakfasts make for must-do repeat visits for me. See you there.
